Primary Weapon Systems - .30 Compensator Review

I was expecting big things from this product, especially considering the price point. It ended up being a replacement for a linear comp that was not all that I was hoping it would be, at least not for my 300BLK loads (might be more effective on a .308 due to the higher gas pressure).

Good Stuff: First off this is a very well made item. The finish is impeccable and it ships with a shim kit to tune it to your specific rifle. At the range, it took almost all of the muzzle rise out of my 16" light contour 300; to the point that my double taps are just as fast as with a .223.

Bad Stuff: Obviously, the price is a little prohibitive for the average shooter. Unless you really need to reduce some serious muzzle rise and recoil, this may not be the product for you. Also, make sure you loktite the shit out of it. I used blue loktite initially and whether it was the heat or the recoil or what, it came loose after about 100 rounds. Replaced it with red, and no problems since.

Overall: Very effective comp that just happens to be very attractive on the end of an AR. Given my experience, I would not hesitate to buy another.
